It waa a different niaWer, how
ever, when along in the forties the 6rst
woman of foreign birth applied for ajid
revived rmiers of citizenship.
The "first woman citizen" waa an Irih
widow who nettled in southern Indiana
witb her progeny of sturdy lad and
clever lawies uxn a farm which she had

"The Widow Ryan," aa she waa known
in Daviess County, Indiana, was a great

worthy men and worthy toihd, and who
have left their impress upon the State.
One of thee sons, James 1$. Hyan. be

and a son-in-law, M. L. Krott, also held
that high and honorable position. Another
son won the late Iieiit Col. Kichard J.

in conversation with a group of gentle
men at the Indianapolis Board of Trade,
"I have been sensitive in my lower limbs
to weather change. If iny legs had been
filled with quicksilver I do not tiiink they
could have responded more quickly or
more dUagreeably to climatic condition.
"During the past two years this infirm
ity became ranch worse, and I began to
be alarmed, fearing paralysis. My legs
were cold and recently from my knees
down wore without sensntion. I could
walk only short distances and would even
then experience great wearinetw. I be

There tire all kinds of ensilage, vary
ing, of course, with the material put
Into the silo. There is no magic in the
silo to add to the nutrition of what is
put Into it, though it may add to the
nutritive value by making it more di
gestible. Much of the ensilage from
corn fodder Is deficient in nitrogenous
forms of nutrition. It needs to be sup
plemented, not nocessarily with richer
pusilage, but preferably with dry food.
Instead of trying to ensilage clover,
which Is difficult because It heats so
rapidly, It Is better to cure It and feel

be given with good results to animals

these to Increase their bulk and pre

end loops, slip the ring Into the cow's
mouth and fasten the cord over the
head. Turn the handle down under
the Jaw, which will open the mouth,
and the cow can then bo held witbout
further trouble. If the apple Is not far
down, It can be removed with the hand.
The cow cannot bite or throw her head
around If the tin mile Is hold firm. If
the apple Is too far clown to remove by
hand, take a rubber hose, Fig. 2, start
through the ring and push the apple
clear down into the stomach.
8ccurlnif Ivorly Lettuce.
The outdoor crop of spring lettuce
may be made several days earlier by
sowing the seed In some sheltered place
late In fall. It Is not likely that If sown
now any of the lettuce will come up
this fall. A few leaves scattered over
the led will keep the seed from Injury,
and It will sprout and grow with the
first warm weather In spring. Almost
every one hits seen self-sown lettuce on
the beds where It was grown and went
to seed the previous year. It Is much
more forward than spring-sown lettuce
can be had In the same locality.
Watering Is the most Important oper
ation ln.coiiiuxalon with plant growth.
Plants grown In rooms are iRHieflted
bv an Immersion In Mnter nt the same
temperature ns the room for about tea
minutes once a week. Water should
never be given before neclod, neither
should plants Ikj allowed to iKH-ome
surface-watered. Knln-wnter is the
best for all purposes. The l-t time
for watering plants during summer Is
the evening, but In winter morning
should be chosen for the work.
Banish the CiirryConib.
The curry-comb Is an Instrument of
torture that should be banished. In
tome stables a great Improvement up
on It Is a large wisp of straw, twisted
tight, tied Into a knot, and pounded
flat on one side. The flat side Is used
1n grooming, after being slightly damp
ened. It Is much better for the skin
and hair than the curry-comb, re
moves dut well, and gives the animal
a glossy, healthy coat. Brisk rubbing
with soft woolen cloths Is excellent for
giving the hair a silky, glossy appear
ance, and is an excellent thing for the
Faim Afore Intensively.
Experience and necessity force
changes in methods that would not
occur but for the failure to secure profit
where no difficulty previously existed.
In England, where tlMi system of farm
ing Is on the Intensive jlan, dairymen
are abandoning pasture. They are dis
covering that more food can be grown
on the pasture land than can be se
cured from the grass and hay, and that
by a succession of green crops they can
derive better foods than can be
had from grass. There Is more labor
required, but the products are larger
and the profits greatly Increased. Root
crops and soiling enable the English
to pay high rents, and the methods
they adopt are the result of years of ex
perience. In this country dairymen
will llud it to their advantage to grow
green food as well as grass, and utilize
roots as well also, as a protection
against drought and unfavorable condi
tions. To meet low prices for farm
products the crops on every acre must
be larger and also utilized in the best
Storing Roots in Pita.
The proper way to keep all roots is In
out-of-door pits, and as much as possi
ble excluding air from them. Some
kinds of roots, as turnls, rutatwigas
and carrots, do not easily freeze, but
all are Injured by exposure lo the air.
When we grow potatoes largely we al
ways stored most of what were not
sold In the fall in pits. This Is especial
ly Important for the potatoes required
for seed. While the ground was still
frozen we covered the potato heaps
with straw, so as to keep it frozen as
long as possible. Potatoes that can be
kept from sprouting until planting time
produce much the best crops. Ex
change. Care of Grain Drills.
The grain drill Is quite too expensive
to be allowed to remain out of doors ex
posed to the weather when not In use.
It should be carefully cleaned from all
dirt, and those especially with a fertil
izer attachment should be scoured to
take off the rust from use, and then
coated with grease to prevent the air
from getting to the metal. Most grain
drills rust out rather than wear out.
They are used, even where fall grain
is sown, only a few days In the spring
and fall, and ought to last a lifetime
with few repairs, If they are properly
sheltered when not In use.
lixcrclse for Cows.
The cow which Is bearing young or
giving milk Is not naturally a frisky
animal. We never believed that she re
quired much exerci.se. Most times
when we have turned them out while
cleaning their stables, Instead of run
ning about, the cow will be seen cud
dled close to the stack to shelter herself
from cold winds. It Is still worse when
rain Is falling. The. cow then needs
shelter rather t.2Un exercise, and can
keep warm standing still In her stable
better than she can while water Is be
ing evaporated from her skin. Ameri
Fcedine for Milk.
Feeding the cows to increa.se the flow
of milk should not entail additional ex
pense if the farmer uses Judgment In
proportioning the various foods. If
grain, linseed meal and other concen
trated fowls are given In excess, the di
gestion may be Impaired, and If hay Is
mostly given the animals will be com
pelled to eat large quantities of it to se
cure the desired nourishment. Foods
should consist of both concentrated and
bulky sulsUnces, regulating the pro
portions according to the conditions
.Vs fall rains are coming on some care
Is needed to trees lately planted. Very
often the earth used to flU around the
trunk sinks away, leaving a hollow,
which carries the rains down among
the roots. As these in newly planted
trow are dormant during winter, this
water does them much injury. It Js al
ways best to draw up earth around
newly planted trees. This Is a protec
tion against attacks of mice If the earth
Is closely compacted. The earth should
be pulled away from the tree In the
Grain Cheaper tlmn Hay.
If given with enough hay or straw or
cornstalks to distend the stomach,
grain is better feed than hay, because
more eaxily digested. In the coarser
fodder so much of the nutrition goes
to sustain animal heat or the processes
of digestion, that comparatively little
Is left to make flesh or milk or fata.
The knovh!dge that some grain with
bay makes cheaper nutrition Is ' not
half so widely extended as It ought to
Iw. If it "ere, there would be a better
demand for grain, and It would sell ait

flowers on their young or green shoots,

bloom will be much reduced. These
plants need very little pruning, as a
rule, beyond cutting away any dead
wood or imneces,ry branches, but If
at Buy time it should be thought desir
able to shorten or head back the
branches, the proiieir time for doing It
Is immediately after the plants have
finished their blooming.

constipated all the time. In describing his condition he naed the)
expression " out of whack." I remember it particularly because I had
never heard it before but have often heard it since. Finally aomebodf
recommended him to use Ripans Tabules and he told me that never In
